Translating vintage op shop treasures through my work constructs my imagined family history. As a migrant child, these are
the everyday 'Kitchenalia I dream belonged in mygrandmothers’ and great aunts’ kitchens. That represent memory, love, loss:
each object feels like an homage to my unknown elders.

Whilst making this series, I discovered that my mother actually has some glass pieces that were her mother's, grandmother's
and aunts'. It wasn’t imagined after all. Friends now share their special pieces and associated memories of their loved ones.
